Today, Women's Wear Daily reports that Lincoln Center fashion director Stephanie Winston Wolkoff is leaving to start her own agency, SWW Creative. But Winston Wolkoff won't be straying far from her fashion roots: she'll still be working with Lincoln Center as a client, as well as the CFDA and IMG Fashion Worldwide. The agency will counsel brands on managing creative partnerships.

“I am so grateful for my experience at Lincoln Center working to help relocate New York’s largest media event—Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week," Winston Wolkoff said in a statement. "Now that the transition from Bryant Park to Damrosch Park is complete, I am pleased to now be able to operate on a new, independent stage where I am thrilled to lend my capabilities to forge lasting partnerships on behalf of the fashion industry beyond fashion week. I look forward to sharing the details of many upcoming ventures.”

Winston Wolkoff has been at her Lincoln Center post since 2009; she was previously the Special Events Director of Vogue.
